I FINALLY found Alexander Majorov's LP!!!!! (Scroll down the page to watch the video.)
Thank you soo much Siberia82!
He has also been on lokal tv and he had tears in his eyes.He was very moved by the reception at the airport and that many people were there to congratulate him.
I hope when Jason Brown gets his 3axel the judges will finally take him seriously and mark his PCS accordingly. He's really already one of the best in the world in the respect IMO.

Thanks,siberia , for Majorov's FP video. That was quite a search...
Another one to watch for and enjoy..lucky us!
I must say that I'm extremely disappointed that Andrei's win wasn't mentioned in any of my local newspapers. There's not even an itty bitty paragraph. I guess the only junior-level sporting event that the Canadian media cares about is hockey.
Jason Brown needs a Triple Axel, period. He has shown some good promise in his skating skills and creativity. However, with the top junior men today doing not one but two Triple Axels in their FS, he would not be competitive unless the competition is a splashfest. Otherwise, I really enjoyed his FS, more so than his SP.
Andrei Rogozine - solid SP and FS = Gold medal when the favorite falters. This is what happened here. With Patrick Chan being the dominant skater in Canada, it is unlikely a skater of his standard will be able to dethrone the Canadian Champion in the way that Chan replaced Buttle. However, Canada is no doubt looking for a strong #2 man internationally. Sawyer is relatively old and may not be around for much longer and Russell is still rough and inconsistent. As for Kevin Reynolds, until he got rid of Joanne McLeod or/and his hair, don't expect him to change much. There is a desire to find a wingman for Patrick Chan in the build up towards the next Olympic Games and Rogozine can ride the momentum here to position himself well next season. Certainly, he will be getting Senior GP invitations as a result of the Gold medal here. But he needs to demonstrate more than just consistency and there are clearly a lot of things he needs to work on. Personally, I think he could use some aesthetic make over but it's just me. As for all the hate he has been getting here in this thread - considering most of these posters probably never heard of his name before, it's safe to assume his Gold medal unexpectedly stepped on someone's favorite(s) who didn't deliver, therefore, the nitpicking ensued. Put it this way, nothing is more controversial than Ryan Bradley winning U.S. Championship this year. If Rogozine's win at JWC can receive so much hate, is the only possible response.
Canada's Nam Nguyen wants to skate Senior next year after winning Canada's Juniors this year at age 12 and no more than 4 1/2 ft tall. His goal is to be in the top 5. I bet he's shooting for the Senior's podium 2013. He will be battling it out with Nathan Chen of the US, culminating at the showdown at 2018 Olympics.
It will be Chan and Nguyen in just a couple of years. You've got to give it to Canada that despite the lack of depth, there is always the next one to carry the torch and shine on the world stage.

Would you be offended if he did feel that way? He won the Silver at 4 Continents and scored way higher than anyone at Junior Worlds. His decision to move up to Seniors at 16 was a good one.
